Improving Rural Livelihoods

In conjunction with the Prince’s Countryside Fund, Lantra has delivered the Improving Rural Livelihoods project to help Northern Ireland farmers remain in business while raising their skill levels, and increasing their sustainability and productivity. 

The project assisted farming businesses to evaluate their current position with regard to working practices, finance, equipment and the skills of their workforce, taking into account factors such as being able to identify ways to reduce business inefficiencies, consider potential for diversification, and planning for progression.  The project also encouraged a number of individuals to participate on training courses to boost their business productivity through learning appropriate technical/management skills.

Check out our case studies to find out how people working in the sector have benefitted from the Prince’s Countryside Fund project.
